, the economy is waiting to be unlocked. enthey went on to say that's why we desperately need to you elect at least 17 democrats. 17 democrats in the house would give them the majority come 2014. >> yeah. look, it is a very, very ambitious goal. i believe the last time that the president has won that number of house seats in a six-year election, a mid, six year midterm was 1822. he has got his work cut out for him. i would suggest joe biden remember, house republicans were elected to do a job too. and they're doing, for their constituents exactly what they said they would do in the last election. so it is not as if republicans would bend to the president's will simply because he won an election. bill: that point is that the focus is on the debt. which one might argue would not be there unless you had house republicans pushing for that or at least holding the line. one final point, you say biden has given the game up here. what does that mean? >> yeah, look, i just think if there were a real charm offensive, if they actually wanted to find a deal, what would you not see is the vice presiden
a runnoff election we're told next month. if he pulls through on the republican side and this is interesting, he would then face his democratic challenger, elizabeth colbert bush. she is the sister of political sat at that rift, stephen coal barrett. that would be an interesting race. it would take over the seat left vacant by tim scott, who was appointed to the u.s. senate. watch that south carolina race. >>> all right. back to the drawing board now in the cyprus after lawmakers reject a wildly unpopular plan to raid people's personal bank accounts. you can imagine why that didn't go over too well as part of their effort to secure a bailout from the eurozone and the imf without their help the tiny island's bank sector would most certainly collapse. that could potentially threaten other national economies. these things are often domino effects as you know. greg palkot is live in london. what is the latest on this deal, greg. >> reporter: you're right, martha. people are scrambling blink to prevent another way for cyprus to go bankrupt and dragging rest of europe down with it. in the cypriot
issues. people are hoping to use these issues to beat the other party in the next election. let's get through that, and start fixes problems and i hope we get a down payment on this problem next year. bill: jonah goldberg, fox news contributor. good morning, jonah. is he on track for the right calendar, to get that done this year? >> to get the budget done? or get the budget in balance? i mean, at least he, at least paul ryan has got a budget. barack obama hasn't released one yet but, i don't know what the schedule will look like on the budget going forward it is still, it is controlled chaos right now. bill: what i see on the calendar is maybe late summer, if you want to get a deal together. i think that is what he was refering to on sunday. but you also have paul ryan saying that the debt is not an immediate crisis. and that was pretty much a headline that came out of one of his interviews. i will talk about john boehner in a moment here. how did you remark on the way ryan categorized that? >> look, i think he is basically right. technically we're not in a debt crisis. we don't have
this vote, because there will be some democrats, up for re-election in red states, in states that traditionally vote republican, that may have a tough time casting a vote for this particular budget. because it doesn't balance. also, remember, that a number of these senators have never voted on a budget. martha: yeah. good point. >> the senate has never put one forward. this will be their first vote on a budget and this process will then get them on the record supporting this version. so it's, you know it is an important moment tomorrow. martha: sure is. what a great point. some have been around several years and never voted on a budget before. this will be a first-time experience. we hope they enjoy that part of the job. bret, thank you so much. see you tonight on "special report". bret baier. bill: 18 past the hour. secretary of state john kerry is under fire. why a group of lawmakers are saying that the state department is not doing enough to free an american pastor jailed in iran. an update on that. martha: an amazing discovery where a piece of of apollo history was just f
party to overhaul the gop. that comes on the heels of november's election loss. the rnc admitting in a new report, that they are saying that the party is out of touch with voters nationwide they believe. here is a quote from that report. time for republicans on the federal level to learn from successful republicans on the state level in time to smartly change course, modernize the party and learn once again how to appeal to more people including those who share some but not all of our conservative principles. 30 states currently have republican governors. virginia governor bob mcdonnell is one of them. good to have you with us today. >> reporter: thanks, martha. martha: what do you think when you hear that term to modernize the party? >> well i think it means we need to start winning and the fact that we have lost a couple of, two consecutive presidential races means that we've got to figure out what we're missing and who we're missing. and i think the message to young voters new voters, ethnic voters, casual voter that comes out irv four years to vote in the presidential race, th
the election? >> no, no, i haven't and that's why i think, you know, if you were going to bet you would bet very much against there being a deal. it is a question how serious everybody wants to get. there's a deal to be made and everybody understands what it would be. it is not that far from bowles-simpson was proposed in the bipartisan presidential commission in september of 2010, but nobody has been willing it make that deal. bill: take it outside of washington. our fox polling just conducted this week. should the federal government be forced to balance its budget just like american families? 85% say yes. >> oh absolutely. i'm sure, i don't know if there is a question out there, how do you feel about washington's inability to do that, i'm sure there would be another 85% who say they're sick and tired of it. people are fed up with the washington dysfunction but the leaders are unwilling and unable to bet together and make a deal. so as i say, again, there's a deal to be made. bill: one specific question when it comes to the senate democratic plan under patty murray. how would they react or
